About Me

My photo
Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 55 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, tatting, X stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

Water colored flowers

I watch instruction videos and they make water coloring look so easy.  Then I try and mine never quite live up to my expectations.  This attempt was done on regular card stock and turned out pretty well I think. The sentiment will be added later.  I'm entering it here

Poppy Happy Birthday

This is a card I made especially for my sister because her favorite flower is a poppy.  It's a Hero Arts layered stamp set.  The poppies are beautiful & the layers line up easily.

Floral Frenzy

CASED this card from one I received from Judy Woodland years ago.  I recently acquired the stamp and although my layer placement isn't as precise as hers, it's still a beautiful card.  Thanks again Judy for the inspiration!!!!!!

Add a sentiment

Masculine cards have never been my strong suit.  But this one isn't bad.  And it's fairly straight.  Good job if I do say so myself :-)
